My first post on this thread seems very quaint now

About six years ago, I used to go to a local open mic and try out my songs. The fear of flubbing was much greater than the enjoyment I got being on stage and getting compliments so I quit. I still write songs, but have found I enjoy crafting them more than performing. My guitar teacher and I work on them and occasionally I'll play the recording to friends and family, but even that's pretty rare.

My son was surprised last month when I played him some songs and they were good. That was good enough for me.

I know nothing about guitars in terms of what is 'desirable' and what is not but I just rented a Fender with a plug in as I'm playing in public a lot and I can't keep borrowing other people's. My old Epiphone is a little raggedy. Anyway, ducking hell. I brought it home and it's like playing a pat of butter. Gorgeous. Can't wait till my next show!
